The Yemeni army, with the support of Arab coalition air forces, has achieved a strategic breakthrough on Wednesday by reaching the district of al-Jawf, north of Sanaa.
They were able to reach the district through the Saada governorate, the main stronghold of the Houthi militia which is far north of Yemen bordering Saudi Arabia.
According to a statement by the Media Center of the Yemeni armed forces, the commander of the Saada axis, Brigadier Obaid al-Athla said, “The National Army forces were able to reach the first directorates of Al-Jawf from the governorate of Saada.”
Al-Athla confirmed that Yemeni forces reached the beginnings of the al-Khab and al-Shaaf districts in al-Jawf, after liberating vast desert areas from the Houthi militia in the al-Ajasher area in Saada.
He also noted that the militia is collapsing day by day, and are suffering great loss in soldiers and weaponry.
Al-Athla promised of several more hits to come on the militia, but did not elaborate on any details.
A source currently based in Saada said that the Houthis buried more than 30 of their soldiers on Wednesday who died in the battlefronts.
